A program that allows Medicaid users — including seniors — to seamlessly transition back home after a nursing home or institutional care stay could receive a short-term $20 million funding boost.

The House recently passed the Medicaid Services Investment and Accountability Act, which provides an extra $20 million in funding for the Money Follows the Person (MFP) demonstration for fiscal year 2019. The Senate is expected to take up the bipartisan bill soon.

This comes after Congress originally budgeted $112 million for the program in January.
